What are the conditions of my bond?
All cases and judges are different, but for these types of crimes the typical bond condition would state that you cannot be in contact with the victim for 72 hours. Even if the victim allows you to see them, you could be risking the conditions of the bond agreement. You could be sent to jail for the time that it takes to resolve the case, which could be up to 6 months.
Can my case be dismissed?
Yes, if the victim agrees to drop all charges against you is one way the case can be dropped. In other situations, the case could be dropped due to lack of evidence against you.
If the prosecutor will not dismiss my case what happens next?
in the case that you are going to trial because the evidence against you is strong, the state will not budge if there is a chance for conviction. There are other diversion programs available that might require anger management classes or some other court ordered counseling. If diversion is not offered, the case will go to trial.
I just won my case, now what happens?
If you won the case, as the accused, the case is basically dismissed and you normally would have nothing further to do other than stay out of trouble with the law. Remember that even if you are charged with a violent crime, it will affect other aspects of your life like applying for a firearm license.
